Re: Relationship titles #general


Good afternoon,

Your parent's first cousin would be your 1st cousin once removed. IF your parent's 1st cousin had a child/children, that child/children would be your 2nd cousin.

The person who witnessed my grandfather's death certificate indicated
that he was a nephew. To me that meant he was the son of my
grandfather's brother (or at least half brother). Last night while
watching TV I noticed that someone referred to the first cousin of his
father as his uncle. If that if correct in my situation it would
totally change the prediction about who our MRCA might be.

DNA suggests that I have many 2nd cousins who appear to share a great
grandfather with me. New research suggests this isn't possible and
that these are two separate people who were both named after their
common grandfather, but are sons of different fathers. That would make
them 1st cousins. If so, would the son of one cousin consider himself
to be a nephew of the other 1st cousin? If true it would explain some
tree discrepancies I have been unable to resolve.
